With us, you don’t get into an unba­lan­ced situa­ti­on

New incli­na­ti­on switch from the Chem­nitz-based elec­tro­nics com­pa­ny GEMAC is free­ly con­fi­gura­ble, offers maxi­mum free­dom of instal­la­ti­on and meets the hig­hest immu­ni­ty requi­re­ments. It will be pre­sen­ted for the first time at the Agri­tech­ni­ca tra­de fair (Hall 15, Stand G46), which will be held in Hano­ver from 8 to 14 Novem­ber 2015.

When it comes to the relia­bi­li­ty of agri­cul­tu­ral machi­nes, such as trac­tors or har­ve­s­ters, modern sen­sor solu­ti­ons play a decisi­ve role. Their effec­tive use can­not only signi­fi­cant­ly increa­se the pro­duc­tivi­ty of various agri­cul­tu­ral pro­ces­ses, but is also of gre­at impor­t­an­ce for safe­ty con­si­de­ra­ti­ons. For examp­le, incli­na­ti­on swit­ches are used to moni­tor slo­pe move­ments which, if a cer­tain posi­ti­on ang­le is excee­ded, pro­vo­ke an emer­gen­cy shut­down of the machi­ne con­cer­ned and thus pre­vent it from tip­ping over.

At Agri­tech­ni­ca 2015, GEMAC – Gesell­schaft für Mikro­elek­tro­nik­an­wen­dung Chem­nitz mbH will be pre­sen­ting an inno­va­ti­ve incli­na­ti­on switch for one- or two-dimen­sio­nal moni­to­ring of incli­na­ti­ons in the ran­ge of 0… 360° can be used. The free con­fi­gura­bi­li­ty of the switch is uni­que. The swit­ching angles can be set indi­vi­dual­ly by the user via the pro­gramming adap­ter. The swit­ching thres­holds can be pro­gram­med on any axis or on dif­fe­rent axes. Addi­tio­nal func­tions such as logic links, vibra­ti­on fil­ters and hys­te­re­sis can be con­fi­gu­red by the user as requi­red via the PC soft­ware.

The new GEMAC incli­na­ti­on switch has a small, robust, easy-to-install ABS housing, which is opti­mal­ly tailo­red to the tough requi­re­ments of agri­cul­tu­ral machine­ry thanks to its IP67 cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on. As an opti­on, the tilt switch is also avail­ab­le with a plastic plug con­nec­tor. Due to the fact that the incli­na­ti­on switch can be instal­led in the app­li­ca­ti­on in any ori­en­ta­ti­on, any addi­tio­nal instal­la­ti­on costs can be avoi­ded.

The inno­va­ti­on will be pre­sen­ted for the first time at Agri­tech­ni­ca 2015 in Hano­ver. Sam­ples can be requested from the 1st quar­ter of 2016.
